|hns.dly - Mouthscapes #1 [NTT028] - Hans De Ley|
A bit closer to home (Belgium), Hans De Ley creates some very unusual abstract soundscapes, using only his voice and a seemingly limitless arsenal of DSP algorithms. The result is more than just a monotone array of singing chimpansees, and proves that the voice's range can outperform many a synth. The immense spectrum of sounds accessed through this method clearly offers a lot of possiblities, which Hans puts to use without ever repeating himself...

If you don't end up humming these tunes to yourself for the next few weeks, you have no soul.

|sevensy - music for blank film [mhrk024]|
"Music for Blank Film is the result of several years of recording, deconstructing and remixing a number of original themes. The music was conceived with the notion that the listener would construct mental imagery to coincide with the varying soundscapes presented, hence the title. Instrumentation includes synthesizers, guitar, trombone, percussive and noise elements. Although the suite of pieces begins with quite a dark ambient and sombre tone, eventually the mood lifts, so that by the time the ...

Inconnu, which stands for "unknown" in french, is conceptually based around the idea of finding and exploiting the unknown beauty in the chaos of nature. One major interpretive theme is that of the microscopic, macroscopic, and melancholic world in which we are connected to holistically. That idea was expressed through the use of random molecule-esque sounds bits layered underneath turbulent, looming dubbed-out melodies flowing about a motion of beat (which in my mind reflects the animation of l...
